The Rundown DVD

Who knew? the Rock can act!

Reasons I recommend The Rundown:

1. The Rock. Yes, it is true - he can act. if the Rock can keep finding movies like this he will be the next Schwarzanegger. He fits perfectly into this light-hearted action movie.

2. Christopher Walken has a great time doing a parody of himself throughout the movie. He's hilarious as he does his Walken-esque soliloquies for everyone except the people that might actually have gotten a clue from his ramblings and figured out that this backwoods bad guy has more than one screw loose.

3. The movie is funny. Lots of good lines and situations to go around.

4. The fight scenes - they are stylized and absolutely unrealistic but artfully done.
The DVD includes deleted scenes - but does not tell the viewer why they were deleted. I always find that to be most interesting, especially when the scene looks to me like it should have stayed in.

The extra interviews are pretty interesting as well.

I rate this movie 4 stars out of 5.

Reviewed in 2004.
